EU cat and dog survey

VIER PFOTEN/FOUR PAWS is glad that CAROdog and CAROcat projects have been mentioned as best practices example in the EU Commission’s funded study on the welfare of dogs and cats involved in commercial practices. The survey has been published in parallel to the Eurobarometer on animal welfare and the EDUCAWEL Study on education and information activities on animal welfare. This EU survey was ordered by the European Commission on a special request made by the Council of the European Union in 2010. The study collected data from 12 representative Member States, in which 85% of the estimated total dog and 87% of the estimated cat population in the EU are located.
